Pointless points will be awarded to those who distinguish themselves.

No enemy force over there this time, we're just going to rush across the border and overwhelm a couple of napping mall cops or something.

I'll be entering, of course. Can't really do anything else.

Ninjapitka is Theo on CYS and Mizal on IS. Don't tell anyone though.

Do we need to make story threads?

No, I don't care about all that weird extra stuff Bucky does.

Just make sure you turn in a story before the deadline and you'll be fine.

Just want to make it clear to people who are still on the fence while being too lazy to click: the "contest" gives four months to write twenty pages on a very broad theme, and the only risk is in getting to experience the OG SHAME pit over on IS, not here.

Approximately 3 months. I believe Easter is April 12th.

Three months to write twenty pages then.

I keep thinking how cool it would be if instead of the obvious vampires and necromancy someone did a more thoughtful and mature story based on the theme. Like a character overcoming alcoholism and reuniting with their estranged kids something.

But it's not gonna be me of course because generic fantasy is my element and I've got to keep it simple and also not gaf to ever finish a story at all.

What about an alcoholic vampire reuniting with his broodlings he created decades ago?

Remember that alcoholic vampires can only get drunk by feasting on the blood of victim who are themselves drunk.

My story is already as long as Honor Among Thieves was, and I still have almost three months to add to it. I've unpublished Honor Among Thieves by the way, but it's still in my profile. Thanks again to everyone who wrote reviews, when I write the new Redlion story it will be a lot better.

Why did you unpublish it?

Cupcake took hers down too. It's the usual post contest storycaust.

Although I'm hoping Cupcake puts hers back up again since all she really had to do was click the spots after the quotation marks and hit enter twice.

You guys with accounts should really go to Megumeme's thread and support the request for dark mode. Because every time I go to try to work on my story it just hurts, and I know I can't be alone there.

I fixed the link to make it clickable.

I'll just point out the fact that titles are supposed to be capitalized for now. I'll try take a look at the rest when I can but I'm desperately trying to finish a storygame right now as well. Yours will be a fun one though from what I've seen of it.

Just a reminder that all participants for this contest have until 11:59 pm TONIGHT to turn in their stories for this contest.

So far got 4 stories (2 from Mara) so it's already about the average number that IS pulled in for contest participants. (And those took all year sometimes)

Oh that looks like that's time. Everyone who joined and didn't submit anything will be thrown in the Pit of SHAME.

I'll get around to announcing a winner at some point. Stay tuned!

Okay well I might as well post the rankings and get this over with. I've procrastinated long enough.

First though, despite my general sloth and loathing of reading through contest stories (or any stories but mine for that matter) I actually did like all of them. So I ultimately based the winner on the stories closest to the theme which was resurrection.

Going by that, MHD won. The whole gods thing of resurrection/rebirth thing worked the best with hers. Though given the pics she used, it looked like she made fanfic of me and Mizal and just called the characters something different.

Moving on to second place, would be Mara's brian in a jar story. This one probably came the next closest to resurrection due to the video game nature of the piece. Under normal circumstances, this one probably would have been disqualified due to being broken on IS, but since I was able to read it over here on CYS to the end, Infinite's coding system is probably still a little buggy due to being new and most importantly I'm the only judge that's bothering with any of this essentially the only rules to this contest are mine anyway.

Third place is Ninja which story I read first. In fact I liked that one so much I figured that one was going to win and it probably would have had the theme been Noir or the best Sin City attempt. Unless I missed it, I didn't really see a resurrection theme though.

As for Mara's second story, I got lazy and haven't finished it (yet). I think I just stumbled on the potential resurrection bit, but since she already got second place and the western theme isn't grabbing me as much as the other stories, and it's only just an IS contest, I'm calling it now.

In any case I'm not sure why Mara's always concerned about what the CoGite faggots say about her writing, seemed fine to me. If they're publishing the likes of Tevin the Incel Gangsta and Suicidal Sammy over there, pretty sure there would be a place for whatever Mara does.

Anyway I'll be passing out points soon to the ones who bothered to submit something. Fortunately for the rest of you, there will be no CYS SHAME for your failure, but you do currently have IS SHAME which isn't that big of a deal for Mizal since she's had it for years.

EDIT: Okay, I got a zombie ending for the Western one Mara wrote. So going to say this one came in second place and disqualify the brain one for fucked up coding on IS.

What does this mean? Nothing. Mara still got second place and I still rated all the stories fairly high.

Carry on.

Thanks for putting on the contest. I'm honored to make it in the top 5 entries. In mine, I went for a obscure approach to resurrection and threw in hooker zombies as a literal accompaniment. Anyway, I'm happy to be sitting in third place. Great stuff, Mara and MHD, a well-deserved victory for MHD.

It looks like my Infinite Story account was hacked. I changed the one here because it was the same and easy to guess. I can't even be mad, I've had this happen on another site before, I should've learned the first time. :(
